Choco

Painter and printmaker Choco in his studio in Havana Vieja. His nickname compares him to Eligio Sardiñas Montalvo, a famous Cuban boxer during the 1930s who fought as Kid Chocolate. I wanted to photograph his studio but, like many artists, he wasn’t entirely comfortable with that, so we took this picture of the man instead. Recently a mutual friend told me that Choco felt it was the best portrait anyone had ever taken of him, so maybe next time I see him he’ll let me shoot his muse wall...
